Oh my goodness! How delicious is this recipe. The only thing different I did was cut up the sausages and didn’t cook it for the full five hours. This was absolutely delicious. We served it with brown rice. Huge fan and so simple. Thank you!

Loved by the whole family! We use chicken chipolatas, a large tin of apricots and add a bit of curry powder. Pop in some frozen veg towards the end.

I’ve cooked this twice in the past few weeks, was a huge hit with my family.
Got to admit, I was a bit dubious but … wow. Delicious, and I am not really a sausage fan but my family love them! I love them like this!
Served with mash potato and steamed veggies!
4 clean plates was all that was left!

Can I use beef or pork sausages instead of chicken

This was a huge hit with my family and will definitely make again.
I think next time I may add a can of halved Apricots just to enhance that apricot flavour.
Served with mash and green beans

Made this using herb/garlic chicken sausages~Perfect
Added carrot & broccoli to bulk it out a bit more & served with cauliflower rice
I reckon this would be so tasty with curried chicken sausages
